So many go through life feeling alone, left out, disconnected, unwanted or unheard. Angela believes at some point we will all need a helping hand. She became a therapist out of a deep love and respect for the field and a desire to serve others. It is a way for her to show compassion, empathy, support and care for other people.
Angela believes good therapy changes lives in ways that can reverberate through generations. She views therapy as a safe place to explore feelings, emotions, and relationships. She is dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families achieve meaningful change that may allow for deeper and more satisfying connections.
Angela is a master’s level student at Amberton University in the Marriage and Family Therapy program. She has a BS in Sociology from Texas A&M, MBA in Strategic Leadership and a Senior Professional in Human Resources designation. Her professional experience has afforded Angela the opportunity to work with a wide variety of individuals with varying backgrounds and needs. She believes that her HR experience provides a natural segue into therapy. She has spent the last twenty years serving as a coach and counselor; helping others resolve conflicts and navigate work and personal relationships.
Angela’s approach is a blend of structural family therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. She believes the dynamic in our family sets the foundation for how we navigate our intimate relationships with others. You cannot understand an individual without understanding the familial structure around them. The goal is to develop a stronger sense of self as well as safe and secure attachments both in and outside the therapeutic room. Angela’s style is focused and collaborative, helping people become empowered to achieve their goals by tapping into their strengths. She looks forward to working with you!
